Below are photos of my new framset built and designed by Daryl Roberts and the Form cycles staff.
Bike is built using KVA M2 stainless steel tubing

Other features:
custom 44mm head tube machined by paragon
stainless hooded style dropouts by paragon
stainless PF 30 bb
chris king inset headset
Enve Tapered carbon fork
Custom paint by spectrum powder works.

The frame arrives on Thursday, I will update with weights and photos for the complete build. Enjoy the teaser shots for now.

Here are some build photos. Bike rides like a dream, could not be happier with the set-up. As pictured bike is 16.07 lbs, (well without bottles). I have a compact Rotor 3D+ that will save some weight, and I am looking to move to the 2012 red group soon. I would like to get the bike into the mid 15 lb mark. I will be chopping the remaining steer tube later this week. Let me know what you think.

No doubt someone will say my stem is crooked, I asure you it is not, the wheel is slightly turned to keep the bike balanced.

I would do it with tan sidewalled tubs and all black crankset. Maybe also black bartape and sadlle.

Niiiiiice! +1 for the tan sidewall tubulars. Can't say I like the Rotor chainrings either, but if they do they trick for you...

Great bike, can't wait for a good ride report.

I'd change the fork stickers to black to match the frame's stealth look, but that is just a minor point
